I was hoping someone would be able to help me answer a question.
I've been making my own postcards (mostly collages) for about two years now. Getting them to not be flimsy is the hardest part. I use a couple different techniques to make them sturdy but I'll be running out of supplies soon and I was hoping to find out what a good paper weight is. I bought some cardstock on eBay years and years ago and it's really the perfect weight to go through the mail--but I have no idea what weight it is!
I was thinking something like this - http://www.amazon.com/Wausau-Exact-Sheets-Brightness-Inches/dp/B006P1EQXA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1354338594&sr=8-1&keywords=110+lb+cardstock
It's 110lb cardstock, or so it says. One reviewer says it's not heavy enough for postcards, which kind of worries me. Is the reviewer just really hard to please, or is the paper not really 110lb?
If anyone makes their own postcards or knows what weight of paper a standard postcard is I would love to be informed or hear suggestions as to weight, brand, etc! Thanks so much
